She said What?

“Vanessa did so much more that I expected to ensure my big day went as planned. I did day of Co-ordination but weeks in advance we was helping me with vendors and gave me amazing suggestions. Vanessa understood exactly what I wanted was so personable! All of our friends and family commented on how amazing Vanessa and Sam was in helping everyone get to where they needed to be. My day certainly would not have been the same without Karma Goddess. They are 100% worth it!!” Emma + Dylan 

“If I could rate Karma Goddess with a 10 instead of 5, I absolutely would. Vanessa has a set of skills that goes above and beyond the talents I have ever seen in any other industry. She is incredibly enjoyable and calming to work with and I loved every single step of the process with her.

I hired her for full-time planning and she was an amazing planner. I can’t say enough wonderful things. The vendors she recommended were unbelievable and she literally made this event come together with grace. It was a beautiful day and the best day of our lives and she is honestly the person to thank for bringing all the vendors together and leaving me nothing to worry about throughout my entire year of planning. If you are planning a wedding and need full-time planning and aren’t sure if you need it just do it. She brings the Zen and calmness to the whole event that I didn’t think existed.

As a person, Vanessa is hardworking and endlessly dedicated to her clients. She is fearless, and fun, and a contagiously joyful person to be around. She has added Sam to her team, who also helped run out event on the day of and she was spectacular! We loved their careful attention to detail and their quick action in every situation! Love them!” Jennie + Adam

“Vanessa and her staff were amazing and helped make the process nearly stress free. We had the package, which included planning beginning two month prior to the wedding date; however, once we signed the contract (even before two months) she sent me emails making sure I was on track with my planning, recommended amazing vendors (DJ, florist, and cake baker), and was super responsive to all my emails/questions. We had a situation come up with our caterer who was supposed to be providing our cake and she solved our problem quickly and professionally so as not to stress me out one month before the wedding.

On the day of the wedding, I truly felt like I had thing to worry about because Vanessa and her staff were more than able of handling any issues that would arise. I’m not sure if anything went wrong the day of, which is exactly how I wanted it to be. She’s a fantastic wedding planner and I would recommend her in the future.” Nicole + Greg

“I just wanted to thank you again for the most perfect weekend ever! Everything was beyond amazing! Adam and I had an awesome weekend with all of our closest family and friends. All the vendors (from my point of view) did a great job. We got compliments on absolutely everything. You helped us pull this event together and make it appear as if it were completely effortless. I don’t know what we would’ve done without you (elope or kill our parents), and I hope you know that what you do makes a world of difference to your brides (and parents of the brides). Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.” Rachel + Adam

“I can’t say thank you enough ! Everything was done to such perfection 🙂 I feel like I’m floating on air ! I could ramble on about all of the details but you saw it 🙂 all of it was PERFECT ! Just absolutely beautiful !
Thank you so much
Xoxo”  Tiffany

“Hi Vanessa! It’s been 4 days since our wedding and I’m still speechless. When I walked into the tent, and around the courtyard of the Bonnet House I was amazed at how you managed to capture every single one of our visions! It was simply amazing. People are still telling me how unique everything was. Even the photographer said she’s never seen flowers set up the way you set them up. Even the presentation in bridal suite was magnificent. I never could have imagined something so beautiful for our wedding day, and we owe that to you! The flower girls were running around with their wands all day on Sunday. Thank you so much for the time, effort and vision you put into our special day! You made the whole event picturesque. Thank you so so much!”  Kaili + Jonathan

“Words can’t even describe just how grateful I am for everything you’ve done for Ethan and me. I really, truly don’t know what we would have done without you. From the moment we met, I felt a connection with you and I’m thrilled that initial impression was right…actually you’ve gone above and beyond my hopes and expectations and I thank you for that. I feel that you are not only my coordinator but you’ve become my friend over the last few months. Thank you so much for everything! If you ever need anything, even beyond references and what not, please do not hesitate to call or email.” Rose + Ethan

“I hired Vanessa initially as my wedding planner but also contracted her to do my flowers. I can’t put into words how grateful I am for her. My wedding was almost a disaster – literally. I was originally going to be married at the Breakwater on South Beach. However, after 10 months of struggling, compromising and being dealt blow after blow with that venue – the one that sealed the deal was 3 weeks prior to my wedding Vanessa informed me that Ocean Drive and it’s adjacent roads would be shut down due to an event South Beach was having. Seriously? The Breakwater neglected to inform me of information that would prevent my vendors and guests from arriving to the event. Vanessa found out because she and her staff called Miami Beach to hire police officers to secure my venue due to the event they only told us about 1 week earlier. Had she not been calling to hire security, we would have never known. To make matters worse, I had a flight the following morning to Vegas for my Bachelorette so I was not exactly in a celebratory mood. Vanessa told me she would make it work out and she did.

The next morning before I left for Vegas, Vanessa held an emergency meeting with the Breakwater and asked me to come check out a new venue called The Bath Club after her meeting. To my utter surprise, she got all my money back from the Breakwater, and she found a venue that is out of this world for me to have my wedding. I felt surreal walking into that place thinking, ‘Is this really happening?’ the whole time. The Bath Club exceeded my expectations – I truly felt like it was an episode of “My Fair Wedding with David Tuttera” and that I had a magical transformation.

On the day of the wedding, when I walked into the ballroom (before it was even done) I almost cried because this almost didn’t happen. The flower arrangements were out of this world. I wanted something different, modern, enchanted and she delivered that and more. I wish I could have kept them forever. I can never thank Vanessa enough for what she did. She is professional, creative and, most importantly, concerned – she cares about you and wants YOU to have the most amazing day possible.

I always had faith in Vanessa and her abilities. I know that even if we had to do it at Breakwater, it would have been great because she was organizing everything. But I believe it was fate that I chose her because everything worked out for the better.

Ultimately, Vanessa was my Fairy Godmother (except way younger and prettier) and my friend.” Jillian + Adrian
